|TABLE A1. Model parameters for perch and its resource (Claessen et al. , Persson et al. [2003;2004]).|
|TABLE A2. Model equations describing the individual-level model of perch with irreversible mass x and reversible mass y, and the dynamics of the unstructured resource population. The index i refers to perch cohorts, each cohort consisting of Ni individuals. refers to time within the season. See also Eq. 1.|
